Trailer hitch installed?

Can anyone recommend someone to install a trailer hitch. The dealership that I purchased my car doesn't offer one but they have said that an aftermarket one won't void my warranty. I would attempt it myself but the videos all say my exhaust needs to be dropped in order to accommodate the hitch and also I do not have access to ramps to access under my car.
Thanks

Iíve installed several. Go to YouTube for directions, they are pretty easy to do. Dropping the muffler usually just involves pulling the muffler hanger off the pin (takes a little muscle and some wd-40). Iíve put hitches on a VW Jetta, Kia Koup, Honda CRV, and a Jeep Wrangler. It was a very similar process for everyone except for the Wrangler (which was the easiest.)

I went to a u-haul in Hickory. They had the best prices and a good warranty. I checked a couple u-hauls in Charlotte, and they were all pretty much the same. The Hickory location was just closer to me

I've used these guys several times and they are awesome.  Hendrick Mercedes and BMW sends cars to them to do after market installs

I got mine installed at Uhaul, $130 or so including installation.  It's cheaper and faster if you don't need wiring (i.e. if you only need it for a bike rack, not for towing).  I was there for an appointment when they opened and it was barely an hour; half that time was waiting for the guy to come in because he was late.
